Q: Recommend me a laser colour printer please


Can someone please recommend me a colour laser printer for home use? Resolution should be at least 1200 x 1200 dpi. The option to print both sides of the paper would be nice. Multiple paper trays not necessary, nor anything else that will add unnecessary bulk to its size. There should also be connection for Ethernet and USB. Preferable that it uses separate toner cartridges for the different colours, so if one colour runs out then only that colour needs changing rather than the whole lot.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm trying to fix a printing problem with an OKI colour laser printer that has now spread to two printers.

On the first printer, the blue is misaligned with the rest of the colours. Replacing the cartridges, re-seating the cartidges and re-installing drivers has not helped.

Moving cartridges between the two identical printers to narrow down the offending component has led to the yellow now being out of alignment on the other printer.

Re-installing drivers has modified the alignment a little, but not fixed it.

Anybody have any experience with fixing this sort of problem?

I had a laser jet printer for many years and got sick of it as it was costing a fortune in ink even though I was hardly using it The problem I was having was cartridges getting blocked and by time Laser printer than inkjet? colour an better they had been cleaned the ink was running out Even though I wasn't using it for colour printing it was still costing me on colour cartridges as they needed to be replaced in order for the printer to work In the end I was advised that a mono laser printer would be the best option as they use toner instead of ink and as a result they don't suffer from the same problems that inkjet printers do and as a result the Laser colour printer better than an inkjet? are much cheaper I have been very happy with my Samsung mono laser printer which I bought for of amazon and never at any point suffered from the problem of Laser colour printer better than an inkjet? the print heads needing to be cleaned Laser colour printer better than an inkjet? before I could print I am now looking at buying a colour laser printer and would just like a heads up on whether the same is true for colour laser printers that because they use toner the print heads don't need cleaning and you can then not print in either black and white or colour for many months and still not have the problems and costs that you get with inkjet printers

My friend's small office needs to replace their Konica-Minolta 2200 which is getting quirky.
Does anyone have experience with a sub-$400.00 color laser that's reliable?

A:Recommend a color laser printer

Personally, I have an HP Color Laserjet 3600n that is rock-solid reliable and has outstanding output quality with a reasonable cost per page. I got it for 250$ almost a year ago, but I don't know what it would go for now.

I'd definitely recommend anything made by Brother as well, I have an all in one black and white laser by them that has tens of thousands of pages on it without any issues. I believe that they have two models around 300$ at the moment that have a good cost per page and, judging by the demo prints, very reasonable output quality.

I purchased a Dell Inspiron 1764 last Thursday and it is running Win 7 home Premium 64bit.

A Lexmark C500 colour laser printer is hooked up to my old Dell Inspiron 6400 running XP 2005 media edition SP3.

I tried installing the printer on my new laptop through the "Add Printer" option but the printer driver for the C500 was not listed. I tried installing a driver from the CD I got with the printer but it returned a message advising was wrong OS. I then called Lexmark and was advised the C500 is not supported any longer.

Is there a driver for my printer I can install (read there is a driver for Vista 64bit) so that I don't have to go and purchase a new printer.

Im sorry to tell you pcastric, but lexmark's website shows only a 32bit Vista driver. You may want to try it just in case... as many vista drivers work under Win7. The issue here may be the 64 vs 32 bit.

Hi all,

Long time reader, first time writer.

What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with compatible inks?

I'm happy to invest in buying a colour laser: but I can't find any refills for lasers
At least they don't seem to be widely available

So, my choice is: colour laser + genuine inks or colour inkjet + compatible inks

From what I know, side by side: laser's are cheaper
But, how about when compared to genuine laser ink to compatible colour inkjet inks?

I should stress that for me needs, I am not overly concerned if using compatibles doesn't give me perfect results - just close as possible is fine for me

What's more important probably is speed of print at highest quality

ANY feedback would be great


A:What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with ink compatibles?

Finding Compatible Remanufactured Color Toner cartridges can be dicey. While they may be available, the problem may end up being the company tht does the remanufaturing. It is also dependant upon the model printer you get. I have noticed that the savings on my Black Canon X-25 toner cartridge is only about $12 lower than the cost of a Factory original cartridge. There are sites that I would save up to $30 per cartridge, but part of this is eaten up by the shipping charges. For my toner cartridge, I am about 1/2 mile from the store that does nothing but ink and toner refill services, and their garauntee thier cartridges 100%. In 3 years I have only had to return one cartridge and it was an HP #17 Color cartridge.

Now per page printing cost on a laser is much cheaper than on an inkjet. Though the printer cost itself is usually much higher for a Laser. Personally I use the laser much more than than my Inkjet, but I do use the inkjet for all color printing. But then 95% of my printing is monochrome text.

HI chaps,

On MSoft windows 7 compatibility site, MS just say HP1500 Laser Colour = not compatible.
Anyone out there found a solution that works?

A:Hp1500 Colour laser and Windows 7

The last known drivers for your 1500 were for XP. There were many who went to Vista only to find out there were no Vista drivers for the printer.

Here is a solution that worked in Vista which I;m pretty sure will work for you as well. Place the CD that came with the printer in the drive. Unplug the printer from the PC, run the CD software and when it gets to the part to plug in the printer cancel it and pull the CD from the drive. Plug the printer back in and tun it on, W7 will search for the driver on the web and won't find it and then give you some options. One of these options is to load the driver from your PC, point it to where you placed the software and XP drivers and it should pick up the driver and load. Good Luck....

I have an aging Brother HL-1450 which probably needs a new drum (if that will solve the dirt problem), but a new drum + new toner exceeds the price of most new lasers out there (yes, I know that those come with a starter toner, but the issue is the $117 drum).

The HL-1450 draws about 350 Watts when it prints, and that is a decent power draw (lights dim). Most of the new brothers want double that (including the currently on-sale HL-5240).

I am not married to Brother here ... can someone recommend a decent B&W laser printer which does not draw 600-1000W to print?

My computer is working fine - but I recently purchased a new Samsung ML2570 laser printer that just died when the starter cartridge ran out of toner (or actually when the printer counter hit its predetermined set no. - probably 1000). At least I think that's what happened. The starter cartridges come without fuses. Replacement cartridges or toner refill kits come with fuses that are supposed to reset the counters, so when I refilled the starter cartridge and inserted the fuse that came with the kit, the printer still didn't work. I tried again with two more fuses, with no luck. I don't have a printer jam and all the doors are well-latched before I turn it on. Does anyone have any idea what I should do next to get my printer working again? My email is [email protected]

I have had a Canon Pixma MP500 all in one for several years, and it is a great printer. BUT, I am really, really tired of paying for the ink. Even though I buy my ink for much less over the internet, an ink jet printer is cheap to buy, but expensive to use.

Are their any reasonably priced all in one color laser printers on the horizon that would be of good quality? For this type machine, I'm thinking under $500 would be reasonably priced, and I would seriously consider it.

Hidy ho all,

I have a client that does alot of printing. And I mean alot. They go through a a 3x2x1 stack of printer paper boxes in a month.

And their primary printer, a Brother 8890DW all in one, is starting to have its parts fail after just over 3 years of service.

They wanted to get a price comparison for replacement parts vs a new printer.

My biggest issue is, I've never really shopped for a heavy duty laser printer before now. And they want this replacement to be able to scan photos and send faxes as well.

So, what criteria should I be looking for in the printer aspect of the device?

Hello. I have a crashed Dell CPU and a HP laser printer with a damaged memory. What is the proper way to dispose of these? I'd like to do something that is environmentally sound. Is there a use/market for the parts?


A:cpu and laser printer disposal

Depending on how remote you are there should be an outlet that will take these items. There are new directives coming into force in the UK (WEEE Directive) that puts a restriction on the disposal of unwanted (primarily commercial) electrical goods. As a result small companies are cropping up who specialise in unwanted electrical goods, particularly computers.

Some charities have learned how to cannabalise computer parts and turn them into servicable systems, there may be one near you. Alternatively, contact your local authority who should give you advice of where to dispose of your parts in an environmentally friendly manner.

Good luck !

My HP Laserjet III died today and the shop said that a circuit board failed. Repair would cost $150-$200 and they said not to do it. Not worth it when newer printers are cheap.

They have several used and rebuilt printers (bankrupt stock and end of lease machines) available and I trust them. Have bought toner from them for 10-15 years.

They want about $350 for a used 2100 or 2200 series HP laser printer (50,000 copies on one of them) and have others available as well. Newegg has some that look comparable for about the same price new (I want to paper trays).

It has been so many years since I bought a printer that it is hard to know what to get. I use it at home and probably print 20-30 pages a week.

I like HP because they seem to last forever. Bought my laserjet III in 1992 and have not had any problems until now.

Any advice?

HP's are fine. Brothers are also good, but their drums need to be replaced. I guess you just need to get one that has two trays..?

Just my opinions, but

IF you found someone who'd work on it, the cost average probably wouldn't make sense......however, if you could find an older type apprentice person, the person would appreciate quality....they just don't make the new ones like they used to.

Feeding the sheets are no big's not going to harm anything.....

My daughter had me buy a HP Color LaserJet CP1215 Printer for her husband for Christmas. Now she is being told that it needs a special plug or something to work between their computers which connect with a wireless router. One computer will be hard wired to the printer and the other computer is wireless. Won't any printer work through a networked computer whether it is wireless or hard wired? If so, is there anything special we have to do to make it work? If not, I guess it is back to the store.

Thanks for any info.

A:Laser Printer on Network

yes you can connect through the PC that is directly connected to the printer, if that PC is on your network, the only downside is that the PC will need to be switched on for anyone to use the printer

so on the PC with the printer connected, you need to share the printer and give it a name
then from the other PC - you set up a network printer

add a printer
then browse the network - it should see the shared printer

this should help

Hi everyone

I got an HP brother laser printer HL 1440 from a liquidation sale and I am trying to set it up but I have no drivers. I have tried to search the internet and the HP site to find one, with no luck. I really don't know a whole lot about this. If anyone knows where I could find the driver I would greatly appreciate it.

I am using windows xp home edition, I have heard that xp comes with it's own drivers and stuff, but again I don't know much about installing.

Thanks again.

A:HP laser printer driver

Hi, and welcome to the TSG forums.

You really confused me when you described your printer as an "HP brother laser printer HL 1440", since I don't think it can be made by both Hewlett-Packard AND Brother at the same time, but I THINK I've got it figured out.

Unless I'm mistaken, you want a WinXP Home driver for a BROTHER HL-1440 printer. If I'm RIGHT, then download the XP driver from this page:

Do NOT let the "win2000" in the page name concern you; the driver is the same for both Windows 2000 and Windows XP. According to these notes on that page:

NOTES for Windows XP user:

1.This is a Windows XP driver that has the same capability as drivers available for other previous Windows operating systems.

2.If your PC has an active Internet connection, the driver will be downloaded
and installed automatically when you connect the device to your computer.
Your internet connection must remain active during the driver installation.
If you do not wish to install the driver using an active Internet
connection, simply download the file from this page and following the installation instructions.

Judging by that, all you should have to do to the printer is hook it up to your system, turn it on, then boot up, and connect to the Internet. Of course, that might NOT work, but it would be one way to install the printer.

Or, you can download the driver and then install the printer AND the driver the usual way. If you don't know how, open Windows Help, click on the Contents tab, then click on the PRINTING section, and follow the instructions for installing a new printer.

Good luck; let us know how things turn out.

Hi all,

I am after either an A3 or A4 laser printer that can print on heavier papers and the thickest card stock. I will mainly be using it for foiling, hence the reason for it needing to be a laser printer. Obviously it will make more sense if it has a straight path to avoid jamming and curling. I will mainly be using black toner only rather than colour, so maybe a printer that has larger mono cartridges available would be beneficial. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks - M

You are highly recommended to download the software for your printer device in order to ensure that you carry the latest software. Make sure that you are going to download the software which is meant for your PC and printer model. Also ensure that the same network is running your printer machine or the PC on which you have installed the printer software.

Rather than spending the money on a network-capable printer, buy a separate dedicated print-server like Netgear PS110 which can connect 2 printers to your network via the hub/switch.

My Samsung CLX 2160 laser printer was giving poor outputs in that the black text was faint. I replaced all the toner cartridges, but still get the same problem. The waste toner container was also replaced later. I have spoken to Samsung who were no real help. I've cleaned the nozzles and generally cleaned accessible bits of the printer. The test page shows colours that are reasonably good, but the black is faint. A manufacturer's repair will cost as much as a new machine.

I am having an issue when printing. Every page has 8 uniform dots on the right hand side of the paper. I have tried cleaning the cartridge and removing any dust from the machine.
If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.

A:HP 4600 Laser Jet Printer

If the "dots" are of exact spacing then it will be caused by a fault in the drum or the transfer system, a dot being made on each rotation.

There is usually nothing you can do about it if it is the drum, apart from replacing it. That model does have an "all in one" drum and color toner assembly I believe, but I am unsure if the drum will have the problem or the transfer belt in your case.

I am in the market for a printer for home. I don't print alot and in the past inkjets have been a pain because the cartridges dry out.

I am thinking it would be better to get a laser printer. They are so much cheaper than they used to be!

Am I right in that laser toner cartridges don't dry out? Toner is powder isn't it?

Are there any other considerations I should think about?

A:Inkjet vs laser printer question

I have never heard of toner drying out. I have had both lasers and ink jets in the past - but have switched exclusively to lasers.

I have a HP 2200d mono and 2600N color laser. The 2200d has the original cartridge in it and I've had it for years. I don't print that much - but that just shows that it still prints perfectly.

The 2600N prints great color and I'm still using the original toner cartridges. Don't use a color laser for picture quality however!

I'll never go back to ink jet for 3 primary reasons:
Nozzles gum up
Cost of ink
Slow output

I've had to throw away ink jet printers because the nozzles would gum up. You don't have to worry about that with lasers!

Hey all,

I have recently been given a Lexmark C720 link colour laser printer - a beast!

As it is worth roughly 600 - 700, not including two unopened cartridges, I wanted to get some advice on owning and operating a Laser Printer.

What sort of maintenance should I do?
How do I do double sided (duplex?) printing?
Can I put Photo quality Inkjet paper through?
Can I print adhesive labels with it?
What should I NOT do?

Any tips or advice would be much appreciated!

A:Laser Printer Running Advice

What sort of maintenance should I do?
I have had an HP5 for years and the only maintenence I've done is to occasionally replace the toner cartridge.

How do I do double sided (duplex?) printing?
Some printers require an auxiliary duplexer. Mine does; but, some come with it built into the printer. Then there are others that aren't duplex-compatible at all.

Can I put Photo quality Inkjet paper through?
I use laser and inkjet paper in mine and I think the only difference between them is the wrapper.

Can I print adhesive labels with it?
I have printed adhesive adhesive labels with mine since it was new.

What should I NOT do?
Buy a brand other than HP. Well, I'm prejudiced; I've never had a minute's trouble from my HP5.

I've seen laser printers with different DPI. They say that 2400 DPI is better than 1200 DPI, 600 DPI better than 300 DPI and so on.

However when they mention that a printer supports:
600 x 600 DPI, 1200 x 600 DPI, 1200 x 1200 DPI, 2400 x 1200 DPI, 2400 x 2400 DPI I get a bit more confused. Do the 2 numbers refer to the y and x axis?

So that means a 1200 x 600 DPI prints better quality from left to right (1200 dots per inch) and half of that quality from bottom to top (600 dots per inch)?

Or in other words what the difference and which is better of the following two: 2400 x 2400 DPI and 2400 x 1200 DPI?

Yes, there will be four cartridges... Black, Yellow, Cyan, and Magenta... the printer sorts them all out, but they are darned expensive at replacement time... as much as $130 each... or more, depending on the brand of computer.
HP laser printers will not work with off brands of ink. The new ones will not run unless they have the expensive HP cartridges.

But the ink does last a long time... you can find sources online that will tell you how much... The HP 3600 and similar use way too much ink... compared with Konica Minolta, Samsung, etc.
